Emilie Houldsworth b. 1990

Emilie  Houldsworth is a visual artist who addresses the nature of colour, language, logic, and dimensionality. Combining digital quilting techniques, printed textile, and laser cut metal frames; she explores themes of liminality and phenomenology through material dualities. Inspired by minimalist Ellsworth Kelly, and Colour Theorist Emily Noyles Vanderpole and her series “Colour Problems”, her practice lies at intersection within Code and Aesthetics, and explores the aesthetic qualities of information in abstract forms. Informed by her state and place within the city, her work serendipitously references stain glass windows, traditional upholstered furniture and elements of construction, probing the boundaries of visual and spatial perception through visual patterns and mathematical equations of shapes and spaces.
